I got a mail from a student in SRM asking for help regarding an event
in his college tech fest:
I am a student of SRM University, Chennai. We are having Our College
Annual Tech Event in September 2009. I am organising a event "Think
Linux" A Linux Workshop!! At present no much attention is given to
Open Source In our college!! As you are Campus Ambassador Of Fedora
Could you please provide some support for this event!! To make this
event a Success We would be in need of supporters like you!! so that
we could use fedora logo in posters, Banners and
certificate for participation!! The event details i am mailing with
this email as attachment!! hope you would consider my request
I've asked a day or two to reply back. I've also told him to post the
event on our events wiki, or I'll do it. A main thing is that they
have to confirm the event first. I replied him back thus:
I'm sure I'll be able to help you. You register your name on
fedoraproject.org, and add your event there. I'll talk with my fellow
Ambassadors and help you out. Fedora logo can be used, yes. But take
care not to distort it, colors or shape. If you post your event on the
events wiki at fedoraproject.org you can get help from people around
the world. You can also sign up to become a Fedora Campus Ambassador."
Can anyone else guide me, this is the first time that I've had such a
request, and I want to fulfill it.

If someone is interested in getting this right, I can sponsor.
It will be a nice hands on on wiki editing for new contributors.
Any hand? And BTW, this is not as easy as it seems. :)

1) I have installed Fedora 11.
2) I've Aspell installed. I open gedit, went to Edit --> Preferences -->
Plugins to enable Spell Checker
3) I can type in English and from Tools menu I could apply Spell checking.
4) Now I try to enable Tamil, Hindi spell checkers, by installing aspell-ta
and aspell-hi packages
5) I am trying to set the Language in Gedit through Tools --> Set Language
I could not Locate Tamil or Hindi.
Should I do something more? Kindly help.

I think you've definitely accurately identified a problem here and it's
important to improve this situation, but making things compulsory for
maintainers isn't always the best way to go :). For instance, I recently
added congruity as a package to Fedora (didn't push any builds yet, I'll
do it soon). If I'd had to fill out some form to explain what info
should be provided in the case of bugs, that would have just felt like
another annoying hoop to jump through. I also might not really _know_
what to put there, yet, since I haven't seen what it does when it
doesn't work right, so I'm not really sure how I'd go about diagnosing a
problem. But if it were to happen, I'd work it out.
So I'd say it's more something we should figure out a process for
triagers and maintainers to work on together, without beating anyone
over the head with a stick. We should be taking the initiative in asking
our maintainers what information they need on reports for the components
we work on. If they're not replying to these questions, we should ask if
there's something wrong with how we're asking them, and if not, take it
to the appropriate level to explain why we really need co-operation from
maintainers on this. Rather than jumping straight to getting out the big
If a triager were to develop a sudden desire to triage bugs on any
package I maintained, and came and asked me in a productive way what
sort of information would be required on bugs of the kind BUG_REPORT_X,
I'd happily help out with that, and I think most maintainers probably
would. But asking them to do it cold when initially importing a package
might be a bit different.

I just got a request for free media from a person who got my email
address from the fedoraproject.org Ambassador's Details. This is the
first request that I got. Now what should I do to execute this
request? Whether I should wait for your sponsoring for the postage
money or should I do it on my own? I cannot give him the Disc by hand
because he is 300 km away from me. Please suggest the method.
Thank you in Advance.

The logs are here:
Than you Rangeen. :)
The meeting began slowly (as the logs will show, there were only a few
of us present). However, as it progressed, more folks joined in. We had
the following as our main agendas.
- Decide a better meeting time
- Suggestions regarding better Fedora media distribution
- Future events
I'll discuss them one by one.
- Deciding of a better timing for meetings:
As observed and stated in the meeting, Fridays + weekends are not viable
days to hold a weekly meet. Folks prefer dining out etc (relaxing) on
weekends and Friday is a party night ;). Rangeen proposed Wednesday
1800/1900 IST as a weekly/fortnightly meeting slot. The attendees of the
meeting are okay with this. I request a vote on this.
- Future events :
We discussed some of the future planned events. aveek and dipanjan
informed us about their respective events. (Please read the log).You can
find more info here.
- Suggestions regarding better Fedora media distribution:
There was a brief discussion on how we could better service the requests
for media that we receive monthly. Here's _one_ suggestion:
As the list can see, fedora ambassadors are present all over India (many
of us are part of our local LUGs). The idea is, for as many ambassadors
as viable, to create web pages for requests on the lines of the PLUG's
Ambassadors can choose to charge a marginal service fee.
Ambassadors can also choose what this fee will be used for. One good use
is to collect all the money and use it to service free media requests.
( a common account ?)
Another feature of this plan is that Ambassadors can collect requests
for a month and service them in the next. This way, they have a clear
idea on how many medias are to be produced (to minimize wastage in the
beginning). As the system catches wind, we'll have figures to indicate
numbers for mass production of media.
Some of us cannot patch this plan to our LUGs (due to constraints from
college etc.). We can set this plan up personally.
That was more or less the discussion that took place. We urge more folks
to find time to attend meetings _regularly_ .
Is there a resource on the web that contains info on how to go about an
IRC meet? I mean things like <"!" and wait your turn> and <end with
EOF> ? It would be helpful for new folks.
Vote for timing change to wednesday 1800 IST : +1
1900 IST : +1

Fedora Ambassadors : India
Can everyone please save some time and meet at #fedora-india at Freenode
this *Sunday, 12th July at 1800 IST*? We had a weekly meet which died
out for some reason.
The purpose of the meet is to restart communications within the
community. This is what I have in mind :
- Update the community with everyone's activity in the past few months
and to discuss problems
- Future plans for events and such.
The time as of now is 1800. Please feel free to post if it's not
convenient to you.
Please add more agendas to the meet (its really small for the time
being :) ).
Lastly, please attend :)
Please reply to this thread if you intend to attend, so we have an idea
of the number of people expected.
